These are my original working notes, made quite a few years ago in the days before broadband and easy access to census records etc. I have done a certain amount of extra work in getting them ready to post here, so some of the entries are now up-to-date.
They include quotations from George Whitehead's Journals, ed. Helier Hibbs, which have been an invaluable resource for which I am very grateful.
As with the A-Z of Hutton Rudby people, my accuracy is NOT guaranteed! And I'm afraid they are not quite in alphabetical order.
